UbaPesa app has joined the now fast growing mobile app loan business in Kenya. It however comes with a different approach which involves allowing peers to lend money to borrowers instead of only allowing taking of loans which is what many mobile loan apps like Branch, Timiza e.t.c do. You can use Ubapesa App to lend money to people within a short period of time and get paid back with interest or you can take a loan with UbePesa and repay with interest.

UbaPesa Limited is a money lending app that is increasingly becoming famous in Kenya. Founded by a Nairobi based company, the app connects lenders and borrowers enabling them to save money or borrow from each other. According to a recent report by the Financial Sector Deepening (FSD), an estimated 35% of Kenyan adults are using mobile platforms to borrow money. UbaPesa checks the eligibility of an individual to lend money through their M-PESA account.
